Read a lot of really good reviews of this place but was not very impressed, maybe we ordered the wrong items, huevos rancheros and eggs benedict as the pancakes looked pretty good.

Lovely place for breakfast but attention to detail could be better. No provision for gluten free diners. I ordered cinnamon & raisin french toast and there wasn't a raisin in sight! But people obviously love it as the place was packed!

Good option for brunch. Reasonable, family environment. Smaller establishment. We ordered the Spanish omelet, a frittata, choc chip pancakes, OJ & 2 coffees. Came out to $45 with tip.

We gave up on waiting for a table at John's Pancake House and Anthony's years ago. We now come straight here for breakfast. You can't beat the food, quick seating and service.

The food was good, especially the pancakes and egg sandwich. I was surprised they had iced coffee and it was decent. Service was terrible. We had to ask 3 wait staff to get more coffee.
